    Opportunity: Statistical Geneticist @ Golden Helix -- Bozeman, MT (US)
    Submitted by Golden Helix, Inc; posted on Tuesday, September 25, 2012


    Golden Helix is a leader in genetic research tools and services. We're known for helping researchers overcome the obstacles that keep them from making novel discoveries and significant publications. Our business is growing, creating the need to expand our team.

    We are looking for a statistical geneticist to work as part of our Services team to employ leading software tools, state-of-the-art methods, statistical expertise and custom development capabilities to uncover hidden relationships in complex data. If you are a mathematically minded geneticist (or a genetically minded statistician), desire more out of work than just doing routine data analysis, and want to work for a company where you'll have a major impact, this could be the right career for you.


    As a member of our analytic services team, you will work closely with leading research organizations from around the world on projects ranging from simple study designs and array-based GWAS, through rare variant discovery and diagnostic development using DNA and RNA sequence data. You will provide statistical and genetics consulting, perform statistical analyses, employ visual exploration approaches, interpret statistical results, and help prepare summary reports on a broad range of projects and topics.

    You will have the opportunity to interact regularly with our clients during the course of your projects, helping them determine and carry out the best analytic approaches for meeting their goals. You will also work closely with your Golden Helix colleagues to develop results-oriented proposals that clearly define how we will help our clients succeed in their research, and then be part of making it happen.


    • PhD in Human or Medical Genetics, Statistical Genetics, or Biostatistics with a background in bioinformatics; or a PhD in a related field with training or experience in biology, genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics, human genetics, or similar. Experience analyzing GWAS or NGS data strongly preferred.
    • Proficiency in MS Excel, knowledge of the Linus/Unix command line environment, experience using R/S+ or other general statistics applications and using scripting languages such as Python, PERL or AWK
    • Experience utilizing regression, linear models and non-parametric statistics in research settings
    • Hands-on experience in several of the following: DNAseq analytics, Cancer analytics, SNP and CNV GWAS, Expression analysis (array and NGS-based), Pathway analysis, Molecular biology, Epigenetics/methylation analysis
    • Excellent customer service skills, enthusiastic attitude, and solid work ethic
    • Strong oral and written communication skills (must read, write and speak fluent English)
    • Must love nerds. Or better yet, be one!
